Doctors Unbound with Dr. Wilner
Many thanks to Dr. David Draghinas for inviting me to his "Doctors Unbound" podcast. We had a great conversation about how my passion for medicine and writing took me on a long, circuitous route through 7 years of residency and fellowship training, a year of ER, and many hours writing to launch my dual careers in medical journalism and the practice of medicine. We talk about the nuts and bolts of writing, Locum Tenens, and how I finally arrived at my perfect position as Associate Professor of Neurology at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis, TN.
The discussion is thorough, deep, and so long Dr. Draghinas had to break it up into two parts. You can listen to Part I here. Part II is scheduled for release next week.
Telling my story helped me remember what was important to a young, idealistic physician and fledgling writer. Those passions formed the foundation for the discipline necessary to pursue my journey. They continue to motivate me to completely engage in my medical and writing careers.
